PREFACE


In the writing of this account an outline only of the important events has been attempted with the hope that it may serve to call to mind the many interesting details, which form so important a part of the history of this organization. To all members of the Company who by their earnest assistance and co-operation have made this work possible, the Historian is deeply indebted.
GEORGE G. PAINTER Historian. Supply Co., 314th ¡nf. March 19, 1919 THE PERIOD OF ORGANIZATION.
 
The official birth of the Supply Company, 314th Infantry, took place on October 4th, 1917, in Barracks E-37, Camp Meade, Md. At this time Capt. R. B. Caidwell, 1st Lieut. George N. Randolph, 2nd Lieut. H. G. Martin and 2nd Lieut. Homer D. Wright were attached to the company for duty and 62 recruits from 154 Depot Brigade were definitely assigned to the company by a regimental order. During this era of regimental development recruits were being assigned as far as possible, according to the military needs of their civilian training, with the result that there were so large a number of transfers each day that any attempt at permanent company organization was a practical impossibility.
 
In the selection of the personnel of the Sup ply Company, great care was exercised to assign men whose special qualifications fitted them for one of the various requirements of the company activities; and consequently this .sorting out,. which was to lead to a permanent organization, required much more time than that of a rifle company.
 
At the organization of the regiment Captain John C. Weinmann had been appointed Supply Officer. Under his direction the Supply Office was opened, the storehouse constructed, and plans formulated for equipping the hundreds of recruits as speedily as possible. How efficiently these plans were consummated is seen in the fact that even the earliest recruits who found filled bedsacks and blankets on their cots when they arrived, were completely clothed within three days. Due to the crude conditions of transportation the task was no small one, but winter was coming on and the comfort of the men was given every consideration. Early in November, Sgts. Tutor, Hagen and Kennedy, regulars with some years of army experience, were appointed Regimental Supply Sergeants. These men under the leadership of Capt. Weinmann made up the first Supply Staff of the Regiment, constituting an intermediary, so to speak, between the Quarter master and the companies. Thus, with the establishment of what we shall hereafter call the Sup ply Office, as separate from the company, with its staff, this department was fully organized and working systematically by November 15th.
 
Meanwhile stables had been completed, experienced drivers found and assigned to the company and everything put in readiness for the first contingent of animals.24 husky mules, which were assigned to the Regiment from the Re mount Depot on November 2nd. First class Private Morris Moody was put in charge of the stables as Stable Sergeant and a blacksmith shop put into operation with horseshoers Snooks and Kraft in charge. Upon the arrival of the first assignment of American escort wagons with harness, facilities were complete for the hauling and distribution of commissary, coal and other property.
 
On November 15th, Capt. Caidwell was transferred to Regimental Headquarters and it was then that Capt. Weinmann, the Regimental Sup ply Officer, assumed command of the company. Sgt. Frederick Ettelson was appointed First Sergeant, Sgt. Valentine was put in charge of the kitchen as Mess Sergeant and Corp. Wm. Ressler looked after supplies for the outfit. The company was now moved to Barracks F-39, where it remained during its stay at Camp Meade.
 
Thus in less than 45 days the personnel of the company, which required careful consideration, was selected, animals and vehicles assigned to the Regiment and housed in well-kept stables and sheds, the Supply Office and storehouse constructed and functioning in good order; in short the Supply Company with its several departments was completely organized and ready to play its difficult role in the history of the Regiment.

THE PERIOD OF DOMESTIC TRAINING.

The winter of 1917-18 was one of unusual severity but with the coming each month of large contingents of recruits, the Division was being filled up to war strength, and throughout the cold season the training went on in as intensive a manner as possible. The task of obtaining and delivering to the Regiment the supplies which the extremely cold weather demanded was by no means easy. Every Department of Supply was accordingly put on a basis of high efficiency in order to meet these requirements.
 
The Supply Office was a busy place these days. The whole Regiment was equipped with wool clothing to replace khaki, which had been issued to the men as recruits, the storeroom now being so organized that a soldier would enter one end in kahki and emerge from the other in wool. Heavy quilts were distributed to help combat the cold winds and open windows in the barracks at night. Due to the numerous transfers to and from the Regiment much transient property had to be traced and accounted for, and finally the keeping of a set of books, as prescribed by the Quartermaster Department, required a careful and very exacting quality of work. The records of property accountability were inaugurated and supervised by 1st Class Private Chas. H. Yost. The complete reliability of this branch of the office was amply attested by the commendations of the periodically appointed auditors.
 
The Subsistance Department of the Regiment quite naturally had its full share of importance and responsibility. Beef and bread were de livered from the Quartermaster to companies daily, and once every ten days other rations were drawn, according to the company requisitions. The administrative work of this branch, including the rations savings system, was ably con ducted by 1st Class Private R. V. Strouss, who had 1st Class Privates Swartz and Horwitz as coworkers. How satisfactorily this work was carried on is probably best shown by the fact that each of these three men later became non-commissioned officers of the company.
 
The fuel supply presented a serious problem in this particular year. The large stoves of the barracks were kept roaring most of the time in order to keep things comfortable.a situation which required an inestimably large amount of coal. In one month over 270,000 pounds of coal were burned in the Regiment alone. The great ness of the demand and the limited sources of supply required sound judgment in the obtaining and distributing of all fuel. Despite this condition only on one occasion throughout the winter, when roads were almost impassable, was the Regiment without coal, and then for a short time only.
 
These three branches of supply made heavy demands upon transportation facilities and it was only through the splendid management of the stables that these demands were satisfactorily met. Too much credit cannot be given to the wagoners and stablemen, who worked energetically from early morning until evening and who by their endeavors established a standard of animal workmanship for the entire Division. Every man in the company had his daily job during this period of training, and to use the words of a company officer, .They did it with interest and enthusiasm..
 
The general good health of the company during this time of frequent epidemics deserves mention here. Only once was the company under quarantine, and its sick report was, comparatively speaking, smaller than that of any other company in the Regiment. Both officers and men are proud of this record for it clearly demonstrated that their efforts to keep the company free from disease were not in vain.

Another accomplishment of particular pride to the men of the company was the construction of the log cabin in the rear of the officers. quarters. This building, which served as a club for the officers of the Regiment, was the scene of many delightful social events during the winter and spring. The logs for the cabin were cut from a nearby woods and the stones for the fireplace, which was a special feature of the interior, were hauled from a quarry some ten miles from the camp. At the personal request of Colonel Darrah, who was then the commanding officer of the Regiment, Mechanic John E. Rowe had complete supervision of the work, which was done entirely by men of the Supply Company. The 314th Log Cabin came to be one of the attractive sights for Camp Meade's many visitors.

During these months there had been several changes in the personnel of the company officers. On February 15 beside Capt. John C. Weinmann, the company commander, First Lieut. Thos. E. Stilwell and James E. Atherton and Second Lieut. Thos. H. Craig were on duty with the company. Three men from the company.First Sgt. Ettel son, Regimental Supply Sergeant Tudor and Corp. Wm. Ressler.who were destined to receive com missions, had been chosen to attend the Officers Training School, which opened at Camp Meade in January. Sgt. Milton B. Swartz was appointed First Sergeant, Sgt. Krajeski was made Supply Sergeant for the Company and first class Privates Strouss and Yost were appointed Supply Sergeants for the office.
 
Early in March, Corp. Robert J. Allen was transferred to the Enlisted Ordnance Corps and assigned to duty with the company to form the Ordnance Detachment of the Regiment. The personnel of the detachment was selected from men having primary knowledge of arms and munitions. In April, Corp. Allen was promoted to the rank of Ordnance Sergeant, with the appointment of Mech. Russel Raker to be Ordnance Corporal and the assignment of six enlisted men, the organization of the detachment was completed. The quality of service rendered by these men was always most demonstrative of their energy and ability.
 
With the coming spring, as the training of the rifle companies took on an intensive form, so that of the Supply Company was no less strenuous. Kahki was again issued to replace the winter wool. The large contingents of recruits, which came each month, were speedily equipped. In passing through the storehouse each rookie was changed as to appearance from civilians to soldier. The floor of clay, which was laid in the stables, was one of the many improvements which the warmer weather made possible. By steady and intelligent care the animals and stable equipment of the company were put into first class condition. At the spring inspection the report of the inspector gave first place in the general excellence of animal transportation to the 314th Infantry. The splendid condition in which the animals were kept was always a source of pride to the company commander as well as to other members of the company.
 
On April 4th came the ever famous Baltimore hike. The Regimental wagon train, under the command of Capt. Weinmann, left Camp Meade at 7:45 a. m. and arrived at Shipley, Md., a distance of 12 3-10 miles, at 1:30 p. m. The Regiment camped at this point for the night. Starting at 7:05 the following morning the train reached Druid Hill Park, Baltimore, at 10:20 a.m., a distance of 7 5-10 miles. On the 6th the trains paraded with the division and was reviewed by President Wilson. The Regiment left the Druid Hill Camp at 8 on the morning of the 8th and making the full distance of 21 5-10 miles in one day, arrived at Block E, Camp Meade, at 3:35 p. m. This was the first long trip which the train had made, but the careful training of the company as demonstrated by this trip foreshadowed its efficiency in the many long and tedious trips, it was destined to make on the other side.
 
Toward the end of April, Lieut. Thos. H. Stilwell was promoted to the rank of Captain and selected to act as the first personnel officer of the Regiment. Capt. Stilwell was an important figure in the organization and development of the company. Other changes in the company were the appointment of Supply Sgt. Chas. H. Yost to be Regimental Supply Sergeant and 1st Class Private Albert J. Kramers to be Corporal and Company Clerk. Sgt. Krajeski was called to the personnel office to become Regimental Sergeant Major.
 
During May the personnel of the company was filled up to the required strength and those men whose qualifications did not fit them for the work of the company were transferred elsewhere. In all the training maneuvers, hikes, and so forth, the Supply Company took part, escort wagons and drivers accompanying the respective companies. When the Regiment was encamped at the Rifle Range a detachment of the company was on duty there, supplying the companies daily with rations and water.
 
The orders to requisition and issue overseas equipment, which came toward the close of May, found each member of the company ready to do his share in their execution. To complete the task within the required time the company worked night and day for several weeks. With preparations for overseas service going on in earnest there was much to be done by the company. The heavy baggage of the Regiment, including all vehicles, had to be packed, marked and shipped, records of property completed, and all the incidentals, which the big movement entailed attended to.
 
No member of the Supply Company will for get those last days at Camp Meade. There was a great deal of hard work to be sure, but the co operation and interest, which had always characterized the work of the company, was present then; and on July 4th, with the big task completed, the Supply Company celebrated with a royal feast served in the old mess hail, under the supervision of Mess Sergeant James Donnel. Two days later, on the afternoon of July 6, at 3:35 the company stood at attention before the old barracks for the last time and responding to the command, "Forward Ho!" marched off from the scenes of their training to the fields of reality which lay before them.
 
The Supply Company sailed with the Regiment on the transport Leviathan from the port of Hoboken on July 8th.

THE PERIOD OF FOREIGN TRAINING.

Arriving at the harbor of Brest, France, on July 15th, at 4:10 p. m., the Supply Company de- barked about 10 o.clock that night and at once marched four and a half miles to Camp Pontazan, where the Regiment encamped in pup tents. On July 18th, the company took part in the Regimental parade at Brest.the only event of particular interest during those three rainy days. On the following morning, July 19th, the Regiment entrained and after a trip of three days arrived at Laignes at 1:30 a. m., July 22nd. After living three days on travel rations Mess Sergeant Donnel.s bacon and hot coffee at breakfast next morning was a genuine feast.
 
The company left Laignes at 7:30 a. m., hiking to Ampilley le Sec, a distance of 12 miles. It is a rather significant fact that on the several long marches made by the Regiment at this time not a single member of the company dropped out. At Ampilly le Sec the company went into their first official billets, but they were not destined to re main long for on the evening of July 24th the entire Regiment was removed by motor truck transportation to the tenth training area. Arriving at Frettes the following morning the company was established in billets. Within a few days horses and vehicles were drawn for the Regiment and turned over to the company for care.
 
At Brest the various battalions had been separated. To each a Supply Officer and Supply Sergeant from the company were assigned. To the 1st Batallion Lieut. Atherton and Sgt. Kennedy were assigned, to the second Lieut. Schwenk and Sgt. Weinberg and to the third Lieut. Craig and Sgt. Conevery. When the transportation was distributed nine wagoners, a clerk and a corporal were sent to each batallion as a detachment. Under this organization all rations and property for the respective battalions were drawn from the headquarters of the company by the Battalion Supply Sergeants, who in turn made the issues to the companies. An escort wagon, a rolling kitchen and a water cart were issued to each company. Rations and property were transported by truck to the Supply Company, which was stationed at Argillieres.
 
As the Regiment had been completely equipped before leaving Camp Meade, very little Quartermaster property was issued during this six weeks. period of training. Gas-masks and helmets were issued, and all signal, ordnance and engineering property was into condition for active service. All property in excess to the amount allowed for active duty was turned in for salvage and storage to the Supply Office.
 
Particular attention was given to the care of the animals that they, too, might be fit for service when the call came. Under the supervision of Sergeants Kraft and Moody the animal trans port facilities were gradually improved from the somewhat rundown condition in which they had been received to a point of general reliability. In all the field maneuvers, which were executed in the course of the training, the company played its part by sending up food by escort wagons from the rolling kitchens. The greatest contribution to the work of the company during these last six weeks of training was the horsemanship acquired by the company wagoners. This phase of their training was destined to be of great service in the days to come.
 
Both field and reserve rations were issued here for the first time to the companies by the Subsistance Department.
 
The order to move forward eventually came and on September 8th, the entire wagon train loaded with the property of the Regiment moved from Argillieres in the rear of the troops to the entraining point, Montenson. There vehicles were roped on the fiat cars and the animals put aboard, eight to a car. The train, bearing animals, vehicles and the company left Montenson at 6 p. m., on September 8th.
 
During this period the company was separated into battalion detachments, and had been organized for active service, with the consequences that its activities were divided. An account of the work of each detachment will not be attempted, for since from this point the his tory becomes principally an analysis of movements, the story of the company will include all.

THE PERIOD OF ACTIVE SERVICE.

On the morning of September 9th, the Regiment detrained at Mussey. After breakfast had been served from the rolling kitchens the troops, followed by their respective trains, marched in the general direction of Bar-le-Duc. The Supply Company made their headquarters at Fains.
 
In the Regimental equipment there still remained some articles of property which had to be stored. This property, along with whatever personal effects could not be carried forward, were brought in from the battalions and stored away in a common storehouse at Fains. Replenishments of field and reserve rations were made and all adjustments made in the matter of supplies for active field service.
 
The complete regimental wagon train, led by Capt. Weinmann, left Fains at 4 p. m., September 13th, on its first long trip. After travelling two and a half days the trains reached Recicourt, to which point the Regiment had been transported by trucks. Under the direction of Sgt. Strouss the daily rations were already distributed and awaiting the arrival of the kitchens. The train was separated here and sent into the surrounding woods where the battalions were stationed. The sound of nearby guns and several air raids made the two days stay in the vicinity of Recicourt memorable, it being the Regiment.s first contact with actual warfare. From Recicourt the company moved to Bois Pommiers and thence to Forest de Hesse on Sept. 21st. All moves were now made under cover of darkness and strict discipline enforced to prevent any information being given to the enemy.
 
During the next four days the train was given a final organization for its first trip .Up.. On the night of Sept. 25th the company and Regimental train, consisting of rolling kitchens, escort wagons and water carts, with Capt. Weinmann, who rose from a sick bed to lead his company, at its head.
 
At 12 o'clock the train halted on Hill 281, just north of Dombasle, and took a position awaiting further orders. Following in the path of the advancing troops the train continued its journey for two days along sunken and heavily shelled roads. In many places halts were made until the engineers could make the way in any sense possible. The nerves and energies of both men and animals were taxed to their utmost in order to get food to the Regiment with the least possible de lay.
 
Passing through Malancourt on Sept. 27th, the train halted toward night in an open field in the rear of Bois de Malancourt, west of Montfaucon. The last lap of the trip had been made amid heavy shelling, but there were no losses in the train until early the following morning when a giant shell exploding on one side of the field killed.. Mess Sergeant Vaux of Co. .F. and two horses. Wagoners Wetherill and King, of Supply Company, were badly wounded by the same shell.
 
At the break of day fires were built in the kitchens and preparations made under the direction of Capt. Weinmann for serving breakfast to the Regiment. The troops found hot coffee, rice and bacon ready for them when they reached this point about 8:30. Daily and reserve rations were once more issued before the Regiment went back to the front lines. Toward mid-day, during a lapse in the shelling, the train was removed to a point a kilometer to the rear, seemingly better suited for parking the animals and wagons.
 
Each night a cooked meal was sent up to the lines in a train of escort wagons under the command of an officer of the company and on several occasions rolling kitchens were taken forward. These expeditions were frequently under heavy shell fire, and although there were no men of the company killed, Wagoners Strasser, Bieber, Row land and Stone were severely wounded. Every now and then a shell dropped into some portion of the train, resulting in the loss each day of many horses. Words of description cannot do justice to the conditions adverse to transportation which had to be overcome at this time.
 
With Malancourt, Montfaueon and Nantillon secured, entailing an advance of about 11 kilo meters, the Division was relieved on Oct. 1st. The train pulled out onto the road that night and served a hot meal to a large portion of the Regiment which passed back along the road. Due to the condition of the road, crowded with ambulances and trucks filled with wounded, it was impossible for the train to move all during that night. On the following day, with a victorious sun shining above them, the Regiment with its train moved back over the recovered ground to its starting point, the Forest de Hesse. There the troops found supper awaiting them prepared by those of the Supply Company, who had been left behind to guard property, and the band. Few men of the 3 14th will forget that meal.
 
The summary of losses in the company during the Argonne offensive was six men wounded and 57 animals killed.
 
The wagon train following the Regiment left the Forest de Hesse the night of October 4th and after traveling two nights and a day, the train arrived at Rupt St. Mihiel on October 6th. The company was quartered in a small woods just south of Rupt, the battalions being located in nearby camps.
 
The Regiment remained in Rupt for five days, leaving at midnight on October 11th. On the three day journey to Ambly the Regiment halted each day for rest and resumed the march at night, the usual programme for long trips in the forward area. At this time the Division was in reserve on the Troyon-Meuse sector. The Regiment with headquarters at Ambly was scattered about in the surrounding villages, ready to move forward should the call come.
 
The Supply Office was set up in Ambly and arrangements completed for re-equipping the en tire Regiment. Wornout and battle scarred clothing was replaced with new garments and two suits of winter underwear were issued to each man. Ordnance property was repaired and re placements made. Generally speaking the Regiment was again equipped for active field service. This process of equipping required about two weeks of strenuous effort on the part of the respective Supply Officers and Sergeants, but the work was well done considering the facilities at hand. During the stay at Ambly the company received 13 men as replacements and additional animals were drawn to fill up the gaps made in the Argonne offensive.
 
When the train left Ambly on October 25th it was in good condition to make the several long journeys which lay ahead of it. The Regiment remained at Sommedieu for two days, leaving for the front again at 9 p. m. on October 27th. Day stops were made at Lempire, Lombut and Bois de Forges. These journeys made in darkest night were attended with all misfortunes and obstacles known to wagon train transportation, among them being almost impassable roads, unusually steep hills, broken wagon parts, and exhausted horses; but the energy and skill of the drivers surmounted them all and the trip was at length completed.
 
The Regiment went into the front lines on the night of October 31st, taking its position in the division sector east of the Meuse. The train moved from Bois de Forges to Samogneux, a location previously selected by Capt. Weinmann as being naturally suitable for the operation of the train.
 
On the day following an organization and schedule were effected for transporting cooked meals from the company rolling kitchens to the troops. Lieut. Atherton led the train of escort wagons up Death Valley that night to a previously agreed upon point, where the ration details met them. With the wagons half emptied the point was intensely shelled for fifteen minutes. Wagoners Mays and Hackett were killed and Wagoners Conklin and Hamilton severely wounded. Corporal Russel Raker of the Ordnance Detachment, one of the pioneer members of the company, who with Sgt. Allen was establishing an ammunition dump, made the supreme sacrifice at this time. With dead horses blocking up the road, already spotted with shell holes it was only through great presence of mind on the part of Lieut. Atherton and Corp. Tremaine that the remainder of the train was conducted from this area in safety.
 
Each night thereafter the cooked meals were taken to the front and although the train was under shell fire on several occasions there were no further losses. Warm leather jerkins, solidified alcohol and stoves were sent up to make life in the front lines a bit more comfortable. Many shells fell each day in close proximity to the area where the train was parked, but fortunately resulted in no casualties.
 
With the troops advancing the train moved on Nov. 9th from Sarnogneux to Armont Farm. From this point the road to the front lines, be cause of heavy shellling, was impassable to escort wagons, so that most of the rations had to be carried by hand for several kilometers. This work fell to the available men of the company and the cooks of the rifle companies serving with the train. Under the guidance of the company officer, they bore their loads to the most advanced points. The offensive being in full progress it was necessary to send up food both night and day. Acts of bravery on the part of both officers and men of the company were too numerous these days to be recounted in this brief outline.
 
On Monday morning, November 11th, Capt. Weinmann gathered the members of the company about him and read the order telling of the signing of the armistice and the cessation of hostilities. The effect, as everywhere, was the relaxation of nerves, which for days had been racked by strenuous and perilous exertion. The rolling kitches were sent up to the companies that day and on the morning following that memorable night of flares and quiet exaltation, the whole train moved up through Crepion to the battle scarred town of Chaumont.
 
The story of the company ends here. We have seen the company organize for action, prepare for action, and participate in action; whatever takes place thereafter can be of little consequence to the essentials of its history.
 
In conclusion there remains just a word to be said. Throughout all the trials and tribulations, the success and failures in the work of the company there had always been a certain indomitable spirit, which had united the members of the company in the ponds of earnest co-operation and genuine comradeship. Much of this spirit was due to the leadership of the company officers, Capt. Weimann, Lieut. Atherton, Lieut. Schwenk, and Lieut. Craig; always considerate of their men, they were held in respect and esteem by the members of their command. It was not the privilege of the company to do actual fighting in the front lines, and, perhaps much of its glory will go forever unheralded. But every man will take home with him as his paramount rememberance that feeling of self-satisfaction which comes only from duty well done.
